Singing Sox steal the show

Sports stars, H'wood hotties join voices for benefit

Rock ‘n’ roll and baseball were served up with Hollywood froth Saturday at Sonny McLean’s in Santa Monica, courtesy of Boston Red Sox pitcher-musician Bronson Arroyo, “Desperate Housewives’ ” resident hunk James Denton and producer/Sox co-owner Tom Werner.

Werner called Arroyo’s fundraiser for Red Sox Charities a “double-header,” since it followed the right-hander’s afternoon start against the Angels. Arroyo performed an acoustic eight-song, grunge-laden set from his new Asylum album “Covering the Bases,” alongside Mike Inez of Alice in Chains.

But Denton, who met Arroyo at spring training and offered to help set up the event, may have had the wildest ride.

“Unfortunately, they’re making me play guitar, so I’m up in two songs,” Denton grinned. “I gotta get drunker.”

Joining them onstage to play for a crowd that included Teri Hatcher and Mike O’Malley were the Standells’ Dick Dodd and Red Sox teammate Johnny Damon.
